You made good time Marion. Kathy has just phoned to say that she has been held up and won't be making it online for a while.

Okay.. firstly gather your supplies (because if you are like me you won't have done this yet).

You will need:
-a piece of chipboard or thick card 5 x 7 inches (you can use the card that comes at the pack of a note pad or sometimes with a pack of paper etc)
- some coordinating patterned papers - you can use scraps providing you have one piece large enough to cover the chipboard
- at least one 12 x 12 piece of cardstock. I used two so I could alternate pages. Either way you will need three pieces 8 x 4 inches and one piece 6 x 4
- 2 large eyelets - big enough for ribbon or ric rac to thread through.
- about 20 to 30 cm of ribbon or ric rac
- 7 small photos - about 2 x 3 inches. These can be a mix of portrait and landscape or all of one type
- some fridge magnets - I used a whopping big one that our MP kindly supplied but any of those generic and uninteresting flat magnets will work well. If you are using smaller ones then make sure you have two or three. Alternatively Lorraine has some magnetic strips in the shop.
- a craft knife would be useful.
- General scrapping supplies and embellishments.

And here is what I started with:

I have my chipboard and my pp. I have some BG Wisteria which I want to use and have matching CS. I'll go and cut my chipboard to size. Boy is it cold outside.

Step 1

Cut your chipboard to 5 x 7 inches.

Mark 2 inches down from the top of the chipboard and draw a line across. Measure in inch from each edge and mark the line.




Don't worry about the red CS on top.. that was just so I could make sure everything would fit.

Step 2:

Make a slit across the chipboard on the line between the two inch marks. Make another slit parallel to the first and as close as you can. I used my cutter to make these two cuts. Then use a craft knife or scissors to create a slit.

Step 3

Cover with patterned paper. I used DST and glue to make sure it stuck. Turn it over and use a craft knife to cut out the slit. Sand all of the edges and ink.






Set that aside

Step 4

Cut your cardstock into three 4 x 8 pieces and once 4 x 6 piece. This can all be from one piece or from two coordinating pieces.. it is up to you. Score the cardstock on the textured side to fold each rectangle into folded 4 x 4 squares. Score the fourth piece to create a 4x4 square and 2 x 4 rectangle. Ink the edges.

If you are using one piece of CS then cut it as seen below and then trim one piece down to 4 x 6




This photo shows the scoring:
